Fall under the spell of the Mediterranean’s key sites during an 8-day cruise offered by PONANT. With Athens as the departure point, board Le Lyrial for an unforgettable sailing experience discovering exceptional islands and cities. 

Your cruise will begin with the exploration of two of Greece’s major sites, from Napflion: the Mycenae ruins and the Epidaurus theatre, both UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Le Lyrial will then head towards Paros. Nested in the heart of the Cyclades archipelago, this island reputed for its sublime white marble and offers a genuine concentration of Greek beauty, from olive groves to ancient monuments.

You will discover Delos, a minuscule island in the Cyclades archipelago. According to mythology, Apollo was born here. Like an open-air museum, Delos offers unique testimony of the civilisations that followed one another in the Aegean world.

A little further north, you will arrive on Mykonos, with its iconic windmills, beaches, countless churches and whitewashed houses.

Following a stop on the island of Patmos, Le Lyrial will leave Greece to reach Kusadasi in Turkey. An old fishing village with history going back 5,000 years, not far from the Ephesus site, the town is now one of the country’s most famous seaside resorts.

You will discover the volcanic island of Limnos, near the Dardanelles Strait. Protected during Antiquity by Hephaestus, the god of fire, this green and lush island has now become one of Greece’s major seaside resorts.

Then you will reach Istanbul, a rich historical UNESCO listed site, at the end of a magnificent cruise.
